EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Joint Oil Analysis Program (JOAP) was established by a joint Army, Navy, and Air Force regulation as a combined effort to establish and maintain a standard program that would consolidate and coordinate the three separate service's oil analysis programs. Oil analysis diagnostic programs are used to determine the suitability of fluids for continued use and the internal condition of aeronautical and non-aeronautical engines, transmissions, gearboxes, and other components. The purpose is flight safety, enhanced equipment readiness, reduced maintenance cost, conservation of lubricants, hazardous waste reduction, and the extension of component life. The Navy Oil Analysis Program (NOAP) defines the policies, procedures, and the responsibilities for maintenance programs throughout the Navy. The NOAP is part of and operates in compliance with the JOAP. JOAP is in Phase III (Production, Deployment, and Operational Support) of the Weapon System Acquisition Process.

Navy Oil Analysis laboratories are located at shore Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Departments (AIMD), Shore Intermediate Maintenance Activities (SIMA), Naval Aviation Depots (NAVAVNDEPOT), and AIMDs onboard Landing Helicopter and Aircraft Carrier type ships.

Oil Analysis laboratories at AIMDs and SIMAs are staffed with enlisted Aviation Machinist's Mate, Machinist's Mate, Engineman, and Gas Turbine System Technician-Mechanical personnel with Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) code 6403. Oil Analysis laboratories at NAVAVNDEPOT Jacksonville, Florida, and NAVAVNDEPOT Cherry Point, North Carolina, are staffed with civilian personnel. The Oil Analysis Operator-Evaluator performs analysis of used lubricants and hydraulic fluids, evaluates the condition of the fluid or the end equipment that it came from, and recommends maintenance actions to the equipment operating activity.

Technical support for the JOAP is provided by the Joint Oil Analysis Program-Technical Support Center in Pensacola, Florida. Naval Air Technical Data and Engineering Service Command (NATEC) personnel provide on-site support for NOAP spectrometers. NATEC personnel also provide inspection and verification support for newly established or relocated NOAP laboratories.

Follow-on training for JOAP Oil Analysis Operator-Evaluators was moved from Naval Air Station Memphis, Tennessee, to Naval Air Technical Training Center Pensacola, Florida, in March 1997. JOAP Oil Analysis Operator-Evaluator training is provided in course A-491-0017. This is a single-site course utilized by all Department of Defense personnel.

D. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1. Operational Uses. A joint Army, Navy, and Air Force regulation established the JOAP as a combined effort to establish and maintain a standard program that would consolidate and coordinate the three separate service oil analysis programs. Oil analysis diagnostic programs are used to determine the suitability of fluids for continued use and the internal condition of aeronautical and non-aeronautical engines, transmissions, gearboxes, and other components. The purpose is flight safety, enhanced equipment readiness, reduced maintenance cost, conservation of lubricants, hazardous waste reduction, and the extension of component life. The Navy Oil Analysis Program (NOAP) defines the policies, procedures, and the responsibilities for maintenance programs throughout the Navy. The NOAP is part of and operates in compliance with the JOAP.

G. DESCRIPTION OF NEW DEVELOPMENT

1. Functional Description. The JOAP goal is to improve the operational readiness and economy of military equipment through the use of oil analysis, a condition-monitoring concept that relies on the detection and measurement of wear-metals, and the determination of a lubricants' physical properties. The specific diagnostic techniques used for the routine analysis of oil samples are spectrometric and physical property analysis. The JOAP methods used to detect manufacturing and service induced defects include the following:

a. Spectrometric Testing. Spectrometric oil analysis is a diagnostic maintenance tool used to determine the type and amount of wear-metals in lubricating fluid samples. Engines, transmissions, gearboxes, and hydraulic systems are the types of equipment most frequently monitored. The presence of unusual concentrations of an element in the fluid sample can indicate abnormal wear of the equipment. Once abnormal wear is verified, the equipment may be repaired or removed from service before a major failure of a fluid wetted component occurs. Spectrometric oil analysis enhances personnel safety and material readiness at a minimum cost, and serves as a decisive, preventive maintenance tool. The analytical instrument for spectrometric oil analysis currently used by the services is the atomic emission spectrometer. It is an optical instrument used to determine the concentration of specific elements in a lubricating fluid. The analysis is accomplished by subjecting the sample to a high voltage spark, which energizes the atomic structure of the metallic elements, causing the emission of light. The emitted light is subsequently focused into the optical path of the spectrometer and separated by wavelength, converted to electrical energy, and measured. The intensity of the emitted light for any element is proportional to the concentration of that particular element suspended in the lubricating fluid sample.

b. Physical Property Testing. Lubricant physical property testing provides data on conditions that are standards of measurement for judgment of the quality of the oil. In order to determine the physical properties in a sample lubricant, the characteristics of a used sample are measured and the results compared to specified limits. Physical property tests aid in determining degradation or contamination of the lubricant which occur from combustion blow-by, oxidation from overheating, moisture from coolant leaks, and additive content. Physical testing of used lubricants is primarily utilized in ground and ship equipment applications, but may also have some beneficial application to aeronautical equipment as an adjunct to spectrometer testing.

Oil Analysis laboratories at AIMDs and SIMAs are staffed with enlisted Aviation Machinist's Mate (AD), Machinist's Mate (MM), Engineman (EN), and Gas Turbine System Technician-Mechanical (GSM) personnel.

2. Maintenance Concept. The NOAP is established as directed by the NAVAIR 17-15-50 series manual and the OPNAVINST 4790.2 Naval Aviation Maintenance Program.

a. Organizational. Organizational level maintenance consists of taking oil samples and forwarding to an Oil Analysis laboratory for processing. Sampling requirements are identified in the equipment's Maintenance Requirement Cards.

b. Intermediate. Enlisted personnel with Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) 6403 man the Oil Analysis laboratories at AIMDs and SIMAs. The Oil Analysis Operator-Evaluator performs analysis of used lubricants and hydraulic fluids, evaluates the condition of the fluid or the end equipment that it came from, and recommends maintenance actions to the equipment operating activity.

c. Depot. The Oil Analysis laboratories at the depot level perform the same functions as the intermediate level activities.

d. Interim Maintenance. Technical support for the JOAP is provided by JOAP-TSC Pensacola. Naval Air Technical Data and Engineering Service Command (NATEC) personnel provide on-site support for NOAP spectrometers. NATEC personnel also provide inspection and verification support for newly established or relocated NOAP laboratories.

I. ONBOARD (IN-SERVICE) TRAINING

1. Proficiency or Other Training Organic to the New Development

a. Aviation Maintenance Training Continuum System. AMTCS will provide career path training to the Sailor or Marine from their initial service entry to the end of their military career. AMTCS is planned to be an integrated system that will satisfy the training and administrative requirements of both the individual and the organization. The benefits will be manifested in the increased effectiveness of the technicians and the increased efficiencies of the management of the training business process. By capitalizing on technological advances and integrating systems and processes where appropriate, the right amount of training can be provided at the right time, thus meeting the CNO's mandated "just-in-time" training approach.

Technology investments enable the development of several state-of-the-art training and administrative tools: Computer-Based Training (CBT) for the technicians in the Fleet in the form of Interactive Courseware (ICW) with Computer Managed Instruction (CMI) and Computer Aided Instruction (CAI) for the schoolhouse.

Included in the AMTCS development effort is the Aviation Maintenance Training Continuum System - Software Module (ASM) which provides testing [Test and Evaluation (TEV)], recording [Electronic Training Jacket (ETJ)], and a Feedback system. The core functionality of these AMTCS tools are based and designed around the actual maintenance-related tasks the technicians perform, and the tasks are stored and maintained in a Master Task List (MTL) data bank. These tools are procured and fielded with appropriate COTS hardware and software, i.e. Fleet Training Devices (FTD) - Laptops, PCs, Electronic Classrooms (ECR), Learning Resource Centers (LRC), operating software, and network software and hardware.

Upon receipt of direction from OPNAV (N889H), AMTCS is to be implemented and the new tools integrated into the daily training environment of all participating aviation activities and supporting elements. AMTCS will serve as the standard training system for aviation maintenance training within the Navy and Marine Corps, and is planned to supersede the existing MTIP and Maintenance Training Management and Evaluation Program (MATMEP) programs. AMTCS implementation will begin with the E-2C, F-14, and F/A-18 programs. For information on AMTCS refer to PMA205-3D3.
